Yes, pywin32-204 fixed a very silly bug in pywin32 - commctrl.py had a
rediculous value for a constant called PY_0U (instead of the zero it
obviously should be).
This line in Outlook2000\dialogs\FolderSelector.py was to blame:
< code += 0x4f0000 # hrm - wtf - commctrl uses this, and it works
with mfc. *sigh*
I have checked in a fix for this:
> code += commctrl.PY_0U # work around silly old pywin32 bug
Which will work in all pywin32 versions (the line could be omitted for 204+
as PY_0U is now correctly zero). I even remember writing that line and
being frustrated at not being able to find the reason - an incorrect
constant in a .py file didn't cross my mind :)
I actually did have a quick look at SpamBayes looking for the code impacted
by this change. Sadly I got sidetracked and never got back to it - my
BTW, the latest version is looking very impressive indeed (although it
appears to have lost my previous training data). Congrats everyone!
